CHICAGO (CBS) — A major athletic shoe manufacturer will underwrite basketball skills clinics and fall leagues this autumn at eight neighborhood parks across the city.
Chicago Bulls Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen joined Park District General Supt. Mike Kelly in making the announcement, before the championship game for the summer Chi-League Parks competition at Whitney Young High School.
“It’s exciting, really,” Pippen said. “It’s really giving the kids something to do.”
